One way cables beat the humble dumbbell for resistance training lies in its adjustable origin point, allowing you to work muscles from different angles. With these Stirrup Handles, you can move through multiple planes of motion. Can’t yet hoist your body weight? Lat pull-downs offer you a vertical back workout while you build up to pull-ups. Bench taken? Set the cables halfway down and perform four sets of pec flys. The constant resistance of a cable means you’re under tension on the way forward, as well as on the way back. Much like lowering a bicep curl under control, the cable teaches you to work your muscles throughout the lift. Being able to perform an exercise under control, from any angle, is a great way to isolate muscles like your triceps that contribute to bigger lifts.
Versatility: There’s a cable rig and a selection of handles in almost every gym. The versatility of the rig (bicep curls, flys, reverse flys, tricep pushdowns and woodchoppers, to name a few) means you can park yourself in a cable bay and get a full-body workout in 30 minutes.
Safety: Cables can protect you from injuries caused by free weights. Piling on weight plates or dumbbells which are too heavy for you, without a spotter, can be very dangerous. However, with a cable machine, all you have to do is let go of the resistance and the worst outcome will be a loud sound from the plates crashing back to their origins. No heavy weights falling on your feet or fingers.
